MSM

Bought MSM before my Holiday. Could capture a really nice Timelapse of the Milkyway - 3,5 Hours of Recording, 12s of Timelapse. I'm happy about the Quality!

Great Service

Even though I have not had a chance to use the tracker, I must say that I'm very pleased by their service. My package got lost even though the carrier tracking platform said it was delivered. Hanna sent me a replacement unit without any hesitation, which is absolutely amazing!! Thanks again!

Amazing Star Tracker

I've only used it once so far but the results were amazing! Lightweight and very accurate, especially with wider-field shots. By far the most detail I've ever gotten out of the Milky Way with a setup that all fits in a backpack-sized camera bag. Definitely prefer its ease of use and portability over my bulkier EQ mounts. Polar re-alignment with the laser was also a breeze making it a trivial task to move the tripod if I wanted to change up my framing. I utilized a ball head mount for the tracker and the Z mount and a ball head mount for the camera which worked well to keep most of the weight centered over the tripod for my shots. I may eventually upgrade to the wedge for the tracker to make things a bit easier on polar alignment, but the ball head worked fine with a little finessing. Still have to see how far I can push focal length, but with the ease of alignment and steady tracking, I don't think it will be much of an issue.
The only issue I experienced was during the initial setup, as some of the mounting points weren't torqued down quite as tightly as needed and slowly began working their way loose. Make sure all attachment points are very well tightened because if they are not your camera weight may cause things to come loose and swing about. I had seen this mentioned a couple of times elsewhere, so I kept a close eye on it and caught it early before anything swung about. After torquing down all the bits and pieces a bit tighter, it worked flawlessly and there was no noticeable camera creep over the 4.5 hours of use. Looking forward to many more nights of imaging with this amazing product!

I was pleasantly surprised

I tried it last night (05/09/22 PARIS Timeline), installation was simple wih laser beam, and started 50 shots with duration 2 mns each on milky way at south around 4-5h morning with camera lens 16f/2.8. Résult is fantastic, next night i will try 4mns by shot... it's great help system.

Almost perfect

I bought the MSM because I wanted to see if I wanted to do tracking. I appreciate the simplicity, low weight and low cost. The only fly in the ointment was the internal lens on the laser came loose and made the laser unusable. I Recommend having a spare laser along as a result.

Great!

Outstanding tracker and accessories, perfect for "on the move" astrophotography and timelapses. Got great shots of Orion, now just waiting for the Milky Way core so I can up my game!

FAQs

YES! The tracker is designed for wide-angle Astro-landscape use but we realize that many people are using it for deep space also. Therefore although we recommend you not exceed 135mm focal length for best tracking, longer focal lengths may be used if the effect of torque is considered.

In order to not exceed recommended torque and possibly damage the tracker, the maximum length of your lens must be 305mm (12 inches) or less.

1, Replaced the Knob with a Button to solve the deficiencies with the knob design. 

2, 15% smaller than the Knob.

3, Added 1/2 speed star tracking mode, then you can take photos of the Milkyway with one shot.

4, Removed the less frequently used panorama mode.Easier to install with the new screws with stopper 

5, An illuminator was added to the polar scope.

It has 2 modes!

Under the star tracker mode(by default), it can support all cameras.

Under the passive timelapse mode, it only works directly with Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras through the hot-shoe port.

Under the passive timelapse mode, For non-Nikon, non-Canon, non-Sony cameras (Fujifilm, Panasonic, Olympus, Pentax, etc), you just connect the intervalometer.

"I have friends who have bought star trackers and have never used them to take a photo because they were too complicated to set up! And these are intelligent people. The Move-Shoot-Move is the most compact and easy to set up star tracker I have ever used. From the time I placed it on my tripod to finished alignment was only about two minutes, and within a couple more minutes I was shooting tracked images of the stars. Now, I discover it can do time-lapse movements as well! That will be my next outing..."

The mechanism behind Move Shoot Move star tracker:

  • The Earth is rotating.
We know our Earth rotates once every 23h 56m4s. Its rotation axis goes through Polaris, and stars are not stationary relative to our Earth.
Just as the below photo shows, the stars circle around Polaris.
how to do polar alignment
  • What happened?
According to the 500 rule, we usually can not expose for more than 25s, often less than15 seconds, which results in:
1. Many faint stars are missing from our photo.
2. Ugly stars trails.
3. Noise ruins our composition.
  • How to expose more than 60 seconds?
The Move Shoot Move tracker rotates at the same speed as the Earth but in the opposite direction. As a result, the stars will be tracked, and they will remain in the viewfinder. Your exposure time can be up to minutes in duration, faint stars will show up in your pictures, star trails will disappear, and lower ISO helps to reduce noise. Finally, you can get clear, pinpoint photos of stars and the night sky.

  • What's Polar alignment?
The Earth's rotation axis goes almost exactly through Polaris.
So, we need to make the Rotator's rotational axis parallel to the Earth's rotation axis. This is called polar alignment.
  • Is your Polar alignment difficult and complicated?
What if I don't know RA, D-dec, and I've never studied astronomy? Can I still do polar alignment? 
Don't worry, it's easy-
  • If you already know where to find Polaris, then just aim the laser at Polaris, and polar alignment is accomplished😉.
  • If you don't know where to find Polaris, then download a free app, 'Skysafari,' set it to VR mode. It will spot Polaris when you move your phone around the sky.
  • How to do a polar alignment in the Southern Hemisphere?
It's a similar operation, but with different stars, here is a tutorial in more detail.
  • If the star is tracked, will the foreground be blurred?
Yes, the foreground will be blurred. Then what do I do about that? Change the shooting sequence.
  1. First, we turn the tracker OFF to get a clear foreground shot(your composition).
  2. Then we wait for the ideal stars to show up in our composition, turn the tracker ON, and shoot the tracked stars. Then combine these two pictures to get the final one in Photoshop or other post-processing software.

 

 

Check Mr.Gunther's review, the godfather of timelapse.

 

The mechanism for time-lapse: 

It works by adjusting the angle of rotation, not the speed of rotation, with four options: Star Tracking Mode, Move Shoot Move mode of 0.05, 0.075, 0.1, and 0.125 degrees per picture. Therefore, you control the camera's rotating based upon the angle selected, and the interval set on your timer (you need a separate timer/intervalometer, which is inexpensive). The longer the interval you set, the slower the rotation. Once you are done taking a picture (which the rotator ‘knows’ through the hot-shoe cable), the rotator will turn the defined angle, which means that the camera is not turning while the picture is being taken.

“Simple, yet very useful tracker”

“very good and enduring on long cold nights! love how practical and quick to use it is, especially if I am driving from location to location to avoid cloud cover.

I think the laser and its charger is a good idea, however I had it on full charge the other week, then took it out with me and it was producing very weak levels of light, or non at all.

All in all though, a very handy device for my photography.”

"Astrophotography made easy!"

"So I've always been interested in night sky photography, but finding the right gear was always a guessing game. Until I I saw an ad for the Move-Shoot-Move. With its relatively inexpensive price tag, I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed at all. It is solidly constructed, and very easy to align and use in Star tracking mode. It arrived quickly, in time for a camping trip to a dark sky area. I was very impressed with the results. If you are in the market for a start tracker, you will not be disappointed with the Move-Shoot-Move.. Easy setup, user friendly, and most of all, it just works! I will be recommending it to all my friends who are interested in night sky photography. My dream of getting sharp, images of the Milky-Way have come true, and the Move-Shoot-Move made it possible. No complicated image stacking needed. Able to shoot long exposures at very low iso. I love this piece of gear, and you will too!"
